Gram Stain: Test yourself in Gram Stain Procedure

About this Simulation

This short, targeted simulation is adapted from the full-length “The Gram Stain: Identify and differentiate bacteria” simulation.

Do you have a general idea of how the Gram Staining procedure looks like, but you want to practice the exact protocol in a stepwise manner? Do you want to feel comfortable enough with the learned techniques and reasoning behind it, so nothing can surprise you in the lab? This simulation is perfect for you! 

Recall the steps in Gram Staining 

With this visual minigame, you will have a chance to repeat all steps necessary to perform Gram Staining and prepare samples for later identification. You will repeat the methodology and reasoning behind each reagent and the colorful graphics will help you remember the most crucial parts of the protocol. With this simulation you will be more than ready to try Gram staining in a real lab!

Learning Objectives

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:

  • Recall the steps of a Gram stain procedure

  • Justify the methodology and reagents used in a Gram staining procedure

Techniques in Lab

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:

  • The Gram stain technique
  • Self Testing
